Weleda and Avalon Organics

A couple of weeks ago I purchased A LOT of stuff from iherb.com so I will be doing reviews on those products in the coming weeks but today I wanted to review these two. They are the coQ10 Firming Body Lotion from Avalon Organics and the Wild Rose Deodorant from Weleda.

The coQ10 Firming Body Lotion is great, I had seen this online about a year ago but couldn't find it in any stores here so i'm really glad iherb stock it, because when I was pregant I got a bit lazy with moisturizing to keep my skin supple and now im paying for it. As I said, I only got this a couple of weeks ago but I can already see the difference, nothing major, but noticable. I think in a few more weeks i'll update to let you know if there is any change. Like any firming lotion though, you can't be lazy and expect it to do all the work, so with light exercise it should give good results, but again i'll update in a few weeks.
Cost: $11.23

The Wild Rose Deodorant is a hit and miss with me. Obviously it's not an antiperspirant so it doesn't stop you sweating but it does make your sweat smell like wild rose haha, so it the sense what it's meant for it is a good product but i personally don't really like the smell that much. It's not a bad smell, just an antiquish (if that's a word) sort of smell, it reminds me of something my nana would wear. I do use it though, the smell isn't overpowering but it's there. I think maybe I will try another scent next time as I do like this deodorant and the fact that  it doesn't sting my underarms if I have just shaved is another reason I like it.
